SNL's Appeal to Girl Scout Cookies: "Have Some Pride in Yourselves; You Are Not the McRib"
The latest episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted this past weekend by a very funny Gabourey Sidibe, featured a commentary piece during "Weekend Update" on the Girl Scouts' absurdly short cookie-peddling season. Quoth writer John Mulaney:
"Have some pride in yourselves, Girl Scout cookies. You are much more than just a once-a-year type of thing. You are not candy canes. And you are certainly not the McRib... How long is this exclusive sales contract going to last, where they only sell the cookies through a weird child army?"
